Thanks McN, yeh I got that, but I don't want the chrome ones, I want the one acx posted about, I'm into the painted thing as you are. I own a plating factory (used to do concourse chrome back in the day) and I'm not a chrome fan for the most part.
I have my MoPar mud flaps and waiting for suitable rear view mirrors to become available (Muth says they will have one in Dec, heated, and turn signals, etc.) I'm looking for a little bigger or rounder mirrors because the Nitro mirrors have a killer blind spot that is tricky to adjust for. After I get the mirrors, I will send mirrors and mud flaps to the painter to get them made white to match the car. I figure the racemesh side vents would also look good painted in (like MyBlue Nitro, is that you ??).
The Westin bull bar has a skid plate that covers up the transmission cooler lower end that sticks out into the air. There is a coolant line exposed there, also. I was conerned about it getting hit by a rock, but the skid plate seems to protect it nicely. I'll post a pic when I get time.
I checked out the K & N but it didn't seem to be any much different from the stock, so I didn't get. I'm not going to do much if any to the engine as I'm pretty happy with the way it performs for my purposes. I notice mileage varies dramatically with how deep you put your foot in. If I keep it around 60and drive smoothly, it runs real close to 20, but drop the hammer a few times and she goes down to the 18s. The Magnaflow did make a performance difference,as well as sounding great, but nobody mistakes this baby for a V-8. It does have a unique sound however.
Keep the great info coming. I will be off the air from Nov 2 thru 10, vacationing in North Carolina at my sister in Law's beach house. Looking for some soft shell crab at Swansboroand fishing the intercoastal.
